This release presents the best music of Ludovico Einaudi, whose aesthetic of emptiness has won him legions of fans worldwide, and Jeroen van Veen's survey of the piano music which is central to Einaudi's style belongs with his survey of minimalists including Glass and Nyman who are less concerned in music as an expressive language than as a commercial artifact. Likewise, his listeners absorb the music less in the sense of engaging with meaning than as backdrop to activity or release from stress. Ludovico Einaudi may well become the "Satie of the 21st century". His minimalist, deceptively simple piano works reach a massive audience well beyond the strict boundaries of traditional classical music. CDs with Einaudi's music break sales records, the hypnotic calmness of his works being the perfect recipe against modern world's stress and fatigue.
